Famous people And Their Genuine Names

Aliases exceptionally uncommon in Hollywood. Most famous people, even the ones with ordinary sounding names, utilize one. Regardless of whether it's to secure their private life, the individuals around them or on the grounds that they simply have a name that doesn't have a ring to it and their administrator chose they required something with more "oomph" to it, most superstars have chosen at some point to change their unique name into something different. 

On the off chance that you put the first name close to the alias', frequently exceptionally clear to see the explanation for the name change. These individuals for instance, changed their names just to make it increasingly pronounceable, American, short as well as unmistakable: 

Natalie Portman 
Her genuine name is Neta-Lee Hershlag. It looks significantly more bizarre than it sounds, isn't that right? Portman was the birth name of her grandma.

Brad Pitt
Yup, that’s not his real name. His actual name is William Bradley Pitt.

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer’s real name is Jennifer Linn Anastassakis, which immediately reveals her Greek roots. Her family changed the name to Aniston when they moved to the US.

Mila Kunis
The Ukrainian Mila is actually named Milena Markovna Kunis.

Gigi Hadid
What? Gigi isn’t a real name? Oh the humanity! Her real name is Jelena Noura Hadid. “Gigi” just sounds more memorable.
And then there’s these people, who has a perfectly fine name (well, perfect-ish) and decided to use a pseudonym as a real “artist name”. It’s not as much creating a new name as it is creating a marketing brand and an icon along with it.
Her real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor. See? Perfect-ish.

Despite naming himself as a wild animal from the jungle, his real name is actually Micheal Ray Stevenson.
The Rock
You all know this one – it’s Dwayne Johnson.

Lady Gaga
Gaga’s real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.
Snoop Dogg
Snoop Doggy Dogg’s real name is actually Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. Imagine being named Calvin Cordozar Broadus and thinking “my son should have the same name.” Gangsta-fact: Snoop Dogg’s mom called him “Snoopy”, that’s why he’s now Snoop D-O-Double G.

And in rare occasions, celebrities even change their names to avoid confusion with other people. If you’re trying to be famous, it probably helps if you don’t get confused with someone more famous than you (when you’re starting out, that is).

Katy Perry
Her real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, but as we all know, Kate Hudson is already a person.
Julianne Moore
Her real name is Julie Anne Smith, but when she started out in Hollywood there was already a Julie Smith and a Julie Anne Smith. Since she was last to start out, she had to change her name to avoid confusion.

Michael Keaton
I know what you’re thinking – there’s only one Michael Keaton. Yes, but there’s two Michael Douglases: Michael is actually named Michael John Douglas.
